WHAT IS THE TIGHTEST FIVE?

Minutes

Winner

Maine Event Comedy’s Tightest Five contest is open to comedians (ages 21+) who would like to perform their best five minutes of original material in a contest setting. All spots for the current contest have been filled.

The contest is limited to 20 comedians and consists of four rounds: two preliminaries, one semifinal, and one final.

Contestants will be judged on the strength, structure, and delivery of their set and will have a shot at winning some great prizes aimed at furthering their comedy career.

At this time, the grand prize includes paid spots, professional headshots, and craft beer. OK, so beer may not make you a better comedian, but it could assist in celebrating a victory.

All Tightest Five contest rounds will take place at Bear Bones Beer, 43 Lisbon St., Lewiston, Maine.

Admission is free, so come out and laugh with some of New England’s rising comedy stars!
